Microsoft Edge browser throws the error in console “Not allowed to load local resource…” if you click on a link which refers to a file from fileshare. For example if you have SharePoint OnPremise and indexed a fileshare. The result page is full of links to those local resources.

Microsoft’s Edge has therefore a solution which works like a workaround. The Edge Browser has an IE Mode. You can read everything about it here.
